There are some beautiful museums in the world which attract millions of visitors. The region of Mardan is rich in culture and especially Gandhara remains are matchless. The people of Mardan had the idea of a museum for a long time and they were keen to preserve the heritage. For this reason they formed National Heritage Preservation Societies in the past. Ultimately with the interest of the local Government Officials and the then commissioner of Mardan, Mr R N Sahibzada, the proposal of building a museum in Mardan was made in 1990. The museum was opened in April1991.

The original name is Takht-i-Bahi. This town is situated 15 km from Mardan on Swat Malakand road. In 1908/9 the ancient Buddhist history was discovered in the mountains. Large numbers of buildings look beautiful on top of the mountains.

Unfortunately the possessions of the houses and buildings have been taken away illegally and maybe decorating some famous buildings in the rest of the world. The population is expanding and new houses are approaching the site. If ignored for a few more years, the tourist and historic attractions will disappear.

Cultural heritage has a great historical significance. It represents the taste and theme of the time. The Guides Memorial Mardan also has a very relevant historical importance. It was built by the British in 1892 in memory of their soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defence of Queen’s Residency in Kabul on September 23rd 1879.This historical memorial was built in the centre of Mardan city.

 Cricket in Mardan

Cricket is one of the popular sports in Mardan. It is played in almost all the small villages of Mardan Division. The children start playing cricket in schools, streets and even inside their houses. Due to the lack of resources and the lack of government grants there is no organised structure for sports in Mardan. And because of the less involvement of sports ministry, there is no quality cricket ground in Mardan where an international tournament can be staged.

Despite these problems Mardan has produced some very talented players. Those who are worth mentioning are: Younis Khan, Sajid Shah, Ahmad Said, Mohammad Amin, Adnan Raees, Sajjad Ali, Jawad Ghani, Kaleem ur Rahman, Nabiullah and Mohammad Haroon. Younis Khan is one of the top batsmen in the world. The others were close to play for national team and some have played club cricket in England.

 The cricket activities are run by a local association, The Mardan District Cricket Association (DCA).This was registered with Pakistan Cricket Board in 1978.It has been trying hard to arrange league and knockout cricket tournaments on yearly basis. It also participates in Patrons trophy and other national championship matches in the country. The office holders of the association are elected every 4 years. Due to the efforts of the association, a team from Delhi, India visited Mardan and played a match against the local team. The efforts of the late president of DCA, Dr. Tariq Mahmood are worth remembering. He invited the chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board, Mr Shahar Yar Khan twice to help DCA.

 There is a lot of work still needed to promote and develop cricket in Mardan. The most important task for the authorities now is to provide an international standard Stadium where cricket and other sports can blossom.
